Olde Baldwin in Black and White – Sunday 15 Sep 2013, 1-5 PM

The Baldwin Historical Society is presenting a continual slideshow of several hundred glass negatives of Baldwin subjects never shown before on Sunday 15 Sep 2013 from 1-5 PM.  The show will be at the Brown Memorial Library in East Baldwin.  All the photos presented in the showing will be available for purchase as 8×10′s in black and white for $5 each.  There are photos of many town residents and their homes from the early days of photography.  You need to see them to appreciate the detail and quality of these old photos.  The slideshow will cycle through several times during the afternoon so you don’t need to get there at 1 PM to see them all.  Just drop in at your convenience and enjoy the presentation.

Donations to the Baldwin Historical Society appreciated.

The Baldwin Town Office Has a New Website

The Baldwin Town Office has an excellent new website that has been up and running since June this year.  The website is a great source of information about Baldwin elected and appointed officials, town government organizations, important phone numbers, and what’s happening in Baldwin government.  It also has schedules, reports on the progress of important committees, and dates for important events.  Check it out at Town of Baldwin Town of Baldwin, Maine

Baldwin Historical Society Has Genealogies on Many Local Families

The Baldwin Historical Society has genealogy info on many long time Baldwin families.  Some family data is quite extensive, others is just bits and pieces,  but the data may help someone to find a missing link in their family history.  The families with more extensive info are:

Black, Brown, Burnell, Howard, Libby, Noble, Jewell, Sanborn, Usher, Riley (Wrilea), Murch, and Chadbourne.
